Federal lawsuit against PSJ dismissed

Lynne Carr also sued Port St. Joe Mayor Mel Magidson, but he was dismissed from the case nearly two months ago.

Another allegation against her husband, that he was carrying a gun at the time of the incident, had been disproved during discovery depositions.

The allegations centered on an incident in December 2011 while the Carrs were separated and divorcing.

The allegations detailed actions taken by the police officers and Billy Carr in removing Lynne Carr from the three businesses her husband owned and she managed, including a florist, wedding planner and boutique.

Lynne Carr was terminated from the businesses by her husband and ordered to turn over all property belonging to the business.

Lynne Carr alleged she was illegally forced to turn over “marital property” that was subject to the divorce proceedings.

She also alleged the police officers illegally used a drug dog to sniff out any potential contraband on Lynne Carr’s person.
